|Special feature||Viaduct open at close to full capacity throughout the replacement process|
Starting in 2008, CPB Contractors (formerly Leighton Contractors) worked on the expansion and replacement of the Newmarket Viaduct on State Highway 1, considered the most heavily trafficked section of motorway in New Zealand. In the Newmarket Viaduct Replacement Project, the deconstruction and construction were accomplished in stages, which minimized the impact on traffic throughout the four-year construction period. A key feature was replacing the 700- meter- long Newmarket Viaduct with a balanced cantilever structure. Motorists have been using the completed section since 2012.
